Michaela Collins MBE, CEO of PEEK, said: “PEEK works hard year-round to improve the life chances of children and young people living in the Glasgow area.

"The Winter Warmer Appeal has generated a fantastic response each year, reaching those who need it most.

“This year, as it launches the sixth annual Winter Warmer Appeal in partnership with hub West Scotland and Speirs Gumley, PEEK is asking for help from the public and companies in Scotland - and beyond - to make the appeal even bigger than ever.”
